    Don't be fooled by the Quesadilla in the title. This is not like Mexican Quesadillas. This is a sweet bread or muffin that is served often with coffee.

      Love this recipe but we use feta cheese instead. Great with a fresh cup of coffee. Definitely not low fat. MMMM brings back great memories.

      This is exactly what I was looking for! Our friends from El Salvador serve this with Pupusas, and it is wonderful! One note- either use fresh grated parmesan or canned grated parmesan. DO NOT use canned shredded parmesan (the kind you get in the refrigerated section), because it doesn't melt into the batter, and makes the texture a little weird.
